Description (5-formylfuran-3-yl)methyl phosphate transaminase
Alternative names L-alanine:4-(hydroxymethyl)-2- furancarboxaldehyde-phosphate aminotransferase;
mfnC (gene name);
[5-(hydroxymethyl)furan-3-yl]methyl phosphate transaminase MJ_0684
Catalyzed reaction L-alanine + (5-formylfuran-3-yl)methyl phosphate = pyruvate + [5-(aminomethyl)furan-3-yl]methyl phosphate
Cofactor Pyridoxal-phosphate.
Comments A pyridoxal 5'-phosphate protein. The enzyme, characterized from the archaebacterium Methanocaldococcus jannaschii, participates in the biosynthesis of the cofactor methanofuran
In Methanocaldococcus jannaschii the aminotransferase MfnC is involved in the biosynthesis of the 5-(Aminomethyl)-3-furanmethanol moiety of Methanofuran - a coenzymes required for the biochemical reduction of carbon dioxide to methane .
